The Disgraceful Disconnect Between The DOE's School Progress Reports And The NYS List Of Failing Schools Is Exposed By The Latest Data.
Last week New York State came out with a list of "failing schools" in NYC and of the approximately 1700 schools in the NYC system, an astounding 38% were found failing. Yes, 640 schools are "failing their students". If that doesn't surprise you how about this troubling statistic? over 200 of the schools the State found "failing their students", received either an "A" or "B" on the DOE's yearly progress report. Unbelievable, but true.
The Mayor disagrees with the New York State Regents Chancellor by bringing up the same old song of the bogus graduation rate and closing schools that fail. However, seeing is believing and the State Regents Chancellor saw students not learning due to their behaviors, students wandering in the hallways during class time, and many students were missing from the classroom.
It is a pity when even the New York State Regents Chancellor realizes that the Bloomberg/Klein/Walcott Administration has failed the children in their ongoing "children last" polices.
